Facilities Management IconPre-Opening Inspections

Metro Rod are trusted by hundreds of UK businesses to keep their drains, pumps & plumbing systems operating efficiently.

Having 35+ years of drainage maintenance and repair experience, our Metro Rod engineers know that drainage, pump and water systems will deteriorate with lack of use. If you’ve come back to your commercial property after a period of absence, it is possible that you could find some unexpected drainage issues. 

How do I know if I need a pre-opening drain inspection?

When a commercial property has been left unoccupied for a period of time, it is common for drainage problems to occur. If you can smell unpleasant odours, or you notice your plugholes or toilets not draining properly, then you could have a blocked drain, a seized pump or another plumbing issue on your hands.

The good news is, Metro Rod are on hand to inspect and fix problems before they become a drainage or plumbing emergency when you return to work. We offer camera surveys, flush tests, high pressure water jetting, pump station inspections and more, to put your mind at ease and get you up and running again as smoothly as possible.
